$8,300 worth of Victoria's Secret underwear and bras stolen in Orlando
Orlando Sentinel ^ | June 16, 2010 | Walter Pacheco

Posted on 06/16/2010 1:00:49 PM PDT by greatdefender

A thief with an eye for fancy lingerie stole more than $8,300 worth of underwear and bras from the Victoria's Secret at Orlando Fashion Square Mall on Tuesday.

Police said the bra bandit emptied 11 drawers and a couple of display trays — containing about 200 panties and 140 bras — from the East Colonial Drive store in less than 30 minutes.

An employee said workers had filled their drawers with the underwear and bras for the upcoming sale at 5:30 p.m. and noticed someone had lifted the undies at 6 p.m.

Workers said they don't know how the thief swindled the sexy undergarments because the store doesn't have security cameras and their merchandise is not tagged with anti-theft devices.

“An employee said workers had filled their drawers with the underwear....”

Sounds like it was an inside job.

Must have given the cops the slip and high-tailed it out of there.

I'm of the opinion that even the finest lingerie is pretty useless without the woman to go with it...

...kind of like having a Ferrari without the engine.

Nice to she she’s dressed for appropriately for the cold.

My daughter worked for VS while in college.

There is a gang of Spanish speaking types who drive up and down the I-95 corridor and steal tens of thousands of dollars worth of VS stuff. Literally thousands of dollars at each store.

VS security procedures are nonexistent and basically end up allowing for the outright theft of as much or more product as is sold. That is one reason a person pays $40+ at VS for a stinking bra.

noticed someone had lifted the undies

Wait, aren't you supposed to pull the undies (as in down), not "lift" them? Have I been doing it wrong?

$40? That’s a bargain compared to the Italian brand La Perla. I was in Milan several years ago and I walked by their showroom, where several outfits were being modeled. Those Italian gals could give the VS models a run for their money. Hubba, hubba.

You lift them if you want to give them an Atomic Wedgie.

The right way to do it is to peel off a pair each day from the inside, and there's not many who can do that.

You can do it the other way, but you end up with a “camelie.”

Not only a "camelie" but also a black eye. And no fun.
